On my K1000, the Patch Subscription settings had the "activate new patches" setting disabled, so I now have almost all of my patches listed as Inactive.  I have "inactivate superseded patches" enabled - can anyone tell me if I mark all my patches as active, if the during my next Detect job superseded patches will then be marked Inactive again, or if I'll have to manually figure out which patches have been superseded mark them Inactive?

Thank you!

Do this:  in the Patch Catalog, configure an Advanced Search thusly:

In the bottom-right-hand-corner of the list, increase the "Show" number to as high as possible.  Now, you're only seeing the "incorrectly" inactivated patches.  One screen at a time, you can change them to "active".  Problem solved!

Thank you!  Looks like that will do the trick.  I wouldn't have figured that out any time soon.

Thanks, again.
